Rename Resource Groups
Need the ability to rename resource groups either via PowerShell or the new portal.
The Azure Resource Manager team is actively investigating the scenarios around renaming resource groups. To help us better understand the use-cases and to determine which implementations may be viable to address the problem, we would appreciate if you could fill out this 3-minute survey:

Is that too hard to implement it? :D
Andreas Fandrich commented
What a pity. More than a thousand votes in almost two years time and Microsoft still ignores us.
Oh come on, how do you expect us to manage and organize large number of resources without this? On Amazon AWS instead? Yes??
Geesus! yes, how many portals do you need to manage the same environments. I am using the portal, but to rename the Subscriptions you have to goto the classic interface. and I just realised my initial resources are all stuck in a group called the "Group" because it was the first one defaulted by Microsoft and naturally you'd assume you can change these names.. .only to realise you can't.
Dear Microsoft, don't throw half-baked c#%p. This is not the 80's or the 90's anymore. Just fix it please.
Also what's with the Powershell commands with a "RM" for half the commands?? get your teams to work together please. If you really want to take a shot at AWS.
Please add this feature, it will really help organize and locate resources.

It's very frustrating having to move resources from one resource group to another (and some resources can't even be moved at all!) just to name the resource group something more appropriate.
It's been over 8 months since we last heard about this, what is the current status of this enhancement?

100% for the rename of a resource group. Moving services to different resource groups is fine and all, but not when you're restricted to what you can move!
I have multiple resource groups that now contain live VM's (post dev testing) and the resource group name doesn't correlate with this!
Should be possible to rename Resource Groups, if some name changes during the development of a project, creating a new one and migrating everything just for a name change seems exaggerated, also not all products can be shifted to another group, like marketplace elements, service bus, Web apps etc..
+1 for this feature!!
Most wanted feature for the Azure Resource Manager yet year and a half later and still not implemented.... good work microsoft -.-
+1 This would be an extremely useful feature.

Being able to update resource groups, along with subscriptions and any object really makes scaling easier to manage. Thanks Michael for the update that this is coming soon. Any reference to a roadmap would also be helpful for us planning.
Marco Accardo commented
would like to see this also

+1 on this and the inability to move certain resources between groups after creation essentially makes Resource Groups unusable as something we can rely on.

Just throwing my hat in the ring. Not being able to do this costs so many hours if you don't get it right first.
I would like to see this option too. Sometimes I delete the group just to change the name, which obviously can't be done if you have something in production.
you really need to stop using display names as primary keys!
Any name should be able to change. Use guids or something for keys and for linking stuf together, not the name!
